Instructions
  1. Wash the scallops and pat them with a paper towel to dry them. Season with a pinch of salt.
  2. In a skillet, combine the olive oil and the canola oil, and heat until extremely hot.
  3. Lower the scallops individually and away from you, making sure not to crowd the pan
  4. Add some butter and baste the scallops as they cook. Cook until almost cooked through, about 2 minutes. They should have a golden brown color to them.
  5. Carefully turn the scallops over and continue to baste the scallops. When they are cooked they should be totally opaque and firm.
  6. Remove the scallops from the skillet and place on a paper towel to drain off any excess grease.
